NC State Snap Count: Defense: South Carolina

Before we completely move on to Marshall, we wanted to take a detailed look at which NC State defensive players the coaches kept on the field the most against South Carolina.

Cornerbacks
In his first game ever as a Cornerback in college, RS Senior Johnathan Alston played all 52 defensive snaps. His counterpart, Sophomore Nick McCloud didn’t leave the field for a single snap either.

Johnathan Alston – 52 snaps (100%)
Nick McCloud – 52 snaps (100%)

Safeties
While RS Sophomore Jarius Morehead didn’t leave the field once at Strong Safety, RS Junior Dexter Wright, Sophomore Tim Kid-Glass and Senior Shawn Boone rotated at the Free Safety position.

Jarius Morehead – 52 snaps (100%)
Dexter Wright – 24 snaps (46%)
Tim Kidd-Glass – 17 snaps (33%)

Linebackers
There was an “OR” between Senior Airius Moore’s name and RS Junior Germaine Pratt, and it looks like it was fitting, nearly splitting the snaps down the middle.

Jerod Fernandez – 43 snaps (83%)
Airius Moore – 30 snaps (58%)
Germaine Pratt – 25 snaps (48%)

Defensive Line
The “OR” in between Senior Kentavius Street & Junior Darian Roseboro, and Senior Justin Jones & Junior Eurndraus Bryant basically equaled out to the starters getting roughly 60% of the snaps with the backups getting roughly 40%.

Bradley Chubb – 47 snaps (90%)
B.J. Hill – 46 snaps (89%)
Kentavius Street – 30 snaps (58%)
Justin Jones – 28 snaps (54%)
Eurndraus Bryant – 20 snaps (39%)
Darian Roseboro – 19 snaps (37%)
James Smith-Williams – 3 snaps (6%)
Shug Frazier – 2 snaps (4%)
Deonte Holden – 1 snap (2%)

Nickelback
Senior Shawn Boone played all but 2 of the defensive snaps, between Nickel and Safety. Maybe Phillips would have played more, had he not torn his Achilles.

Shawn Boone – 50 snaps
Freddie Phillips – 8
